Hello my name is Justin Parkinson, if you’ve read my profile by now you know that:
I’m a Police foundations and radio broadcasting graduate but my passion is traveling. I’ve come to realize that with my traveling I can help people.
I’ve decided to open this blog to keep people up to date on my journey to help my friend Emily Hime with her orphanage in Lanzac, Haiti.
I want to keep people up to date on how things are developing.
I want to let everyone know that I don’t expect huge donations/ pledges. I don’t expect any but any and all will be much appreciated, whether it’s one penny or 200 dollars.
Regardless of how much I raise, I plan on putting a large amount of my future pay checks into a separate account that I have already opened.
I have done some simple math and if I am to raise the money myself the soonest I would make it to Haiti/ the 2500 dollar goal , would be late August, early September; that’s after paying for car payments and being able to buy out my cell phone contract.
I want every one to be aware; if you do decide to sponsor me I will not be using that money to pay for any of my car payments insurance or phone bills, it will go straight into my Haiti account.
As well I want to let everyone know that any money I collect past the 2500 dollars, I will be donating it straight to Emily Himes organization Hime For Help.
I have recently stopped any spending that isn’t needed, such as buying fast food, or spending money on my car; which by the way is a huge deal for me!
I will be dropping everything I have in Canada and leaving my mum behind but will keep in touch with her, Love you mom, along with the rest of my family.
I’m tired of the hustle and bustle of this “first world nation”, don’t get me wrong Canada is great but I feel like my talents are wasted here and that I can do so much more for people in need like in Haiti for example.
Meeting Emily Hime was probably one of the best things that could have happened to me , she really opened my eyes to her passion. Her actions have struck a cord in my heart.
Just seeing Emily’s passion warms my heart and motivates me to want to help her with her fantastic organization www.himeforhelp.org.
Check out the site of this woman who at the young age of 20 has done such un-imaginable things!
Once again guys I want to thank you for all the support ahead of time!
This blog will be dedicated to keeping people up to date on my life up to and beyond reaching Haiti.
